Block Spring Pollen Tips & HEPA Air Purifier Giveaway

Not Dust. Not Bird Doo-Doo.  Pollen!Spring allergy season is fully upon us in many parts of the country. Locally, Atlanta has seen an average pollen count of 2,624 for each of the last nine days!

    Your car kind of looks like mine right now with all the Oak Tree Pollen on it….I've got severe allergies this year, Allegra D doesn't even help anymore….I wish I could lock myself up in a tiny room with just that Air Purifier, myself and a glass of wine.

    Did you hear about the pollen induced outbreaks of eczema this spring? It’s all over town.

    I love your products, just ordered an Austin Air purifier. I sure could use a new vacuum cleaner!
